    Re: BT7 Door Seal Installation

    There are two blocks per side. One goes under The aluminum finisher cap like in my photo. I don't remember if it originally was covered with vinyl but it may have been since some of it is exposed. ...

    Re: Seat frame alignment with seat back

    I was 6'3" when I bought the car in 1963. Down a inch at least now. But the real benefit is the more relaxed sitting position. Many other owners have done this conversion.

    Re: Seat frame alignment with seat back

    I think your frame has not been modified and is the way it came from the factory. The modification I added to my frame would have yielded a measurement of about 1-1/2".
    That simple addition to...

    Re: Seat frame alignment with seat back

    I can't tell from your photo but I wonder if the seat frame has been modified to allow the seat back to recline more than normal. Does it look like the two tabs that hold the bolts that the back...

    Re: BT7 Door Seal Installation

    The block goes on before the carpet. You should be able to remove the carpet piece without disturbing the block or aluminum cap.

    Re: BT7 Door Seal Installation

    Here is a shot of that area of my BT7 before my last restoration. You can see the wooden block that the aluminum cap sits on. The small hole in the second photo is for the sheet metal screw that...

    Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Leak

    Ray, I considered rebuilding the MC from inside the car and I think it's possible but in the end, I decided to replace with a new unit so I have never tried it. It would take some major twisting...

    Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Leak

    Ray, if you're talking about replacing the large rubber dust cover that attaches to the back of the MC and has the rod through the center, I don't think that will stop the leak. The leak is coming...

    Roger, I have stock rubber bushings with metal internal bushes in my upper trunnions. The pin could be pushed through by hand with some effort but I believe I used a small hammer to tap it in, just...

    Re: BJ8 NGK Spark Plugs

    Perhaps we should install NGK plugs in our brains since they "self clean" when fouled. My brain seems fouled a lot lately.

    Re: BJ8 brake master cylinder question

    Thanks for the clarification. Good luck with the project. I wish the designers had given us a tad more room to access the clutch MC. It's a bear.

    Re: BJ8 brake master cylinder question

    Digger, I'm not sure if you are measuring the diameter of the rubber cover between 1 and 2 (also 3and 4) or the actual metal with the rubber removed. In order to install the master cylinder through...

    My 1960 BT7 did not have any plywood between the tank and the armacord. The armacord just lays on top of the tank and tucks down into the open areas on both sides of the tank.

    Front Wheel Bearingsknow

    I'm planning on replacing the front wheel bearings on my BT7 when I install new hubs and discs. I've had some issues with China made bearings in the past and would feel better with SKF bearings. ...
  20. Re: Shifting into 2nd, problem because of the Flywheel?

    Ray, how far do your RPMs drop if you take the RPM to 5000 before you shift from 1st to 2nd? Like I said earlier, I was surprised mine went from 3000 to 1800 just the same as shifting at 2500. ...
  21. Re: Shifting into 2nd, problem because of the Flywheel?

    Ray, the way I did the test was to accelerate in1st up 2500 rpm and then push in the clutch, let off the gas pedal and shift into 2nd. By the time I let out the clutch again and started to push the...

    Roger, after reading this thread, I drove my BT7 today and watched the drop in RPM during a normal shift between 1st and 2nd. By normal I mean regular crusing type acceleration shift, not a speed...

    Re: Cigar Lighter

    Healey Rick, Is that your choke pull? Strange place for it. I thought most of the pulls that were mounted on the dash were just to the right of the key. Was your's moved to accommodate your V8?
